China and ASEAN have huge potential for cooperation given the ASEAN Community's robust demand, said Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen on Sunday.

The ASEAN Community, a market with more than 600 million people, has strong demand for power, information technology, agriculture and scientific research, said Hun Sen at the opening ceremony of the 13th China-ASEAN Expo on Sunday in south China's Nanning City.

To realize sustainable and inclusive growth, ASEAN needs the participation of all dialogue partners, especially China, he said.

Cambodia values cooperation with countries within and outside the region. It will continue to pursue a diversified economy and open its market wider for further integration with ASEAN, said Hun Sen.

"We care about connectivity in fields including infrastructure, institutions and people-to-people exchange," said the Cambodian prime minister.

ASEAN will make it a priority to push construction of cross-border infrastructure, which covers investment in telecommunications, transportation networks and power, he said.
